Abstract

We use HIV testing history of persons newly diagnosed with HIV through HIV partner services to identify persons who might not otherwise have tested. Seventeen percent had never been tested, 44% had not been tested in the previous 2 years, and none had been tested routinely. These data demonstrate that HIV partner services were successful in reaching persons who may not have initiated testing without this service.
